There are also suites that include double spa bath and kitchenette.

Offering three Horseback riding tours a day, this unique experience lasts 2 hours and travels along an old 1880’s stock route. There is one escort for every four riders. There are no cars, and the scenery overlooking the vineyards is simply breathtaking. Not a problem for ‘first timers’. There are horses ranging from Clydesdales to ponies to suit from beginner to experienced riders. Children are encouraged to ride and are well catered for.

Onsite facilities include a fleet of mountain bikes, tennis, a large pool with separate children’s wading pool, heated spa, walking and jogging tracks, and a baby-sitting service. Located just minutes away are hot-air ballooning, wildlife park, horse and carriage rides, tandem sky diving, arts and craft shops, two championship golf courses….
